(A bit of a difficult English dictation today!)
A weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.
How to use:
- Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
- Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
- Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
- Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.
A family was left stunned when police turned up at their house following a report of domestic violence. Their neighbours said that they called the police when they saw shadows fighting through the window and heard ‘yells’. They thought that the parents were fighting. However, what they saw were the shadows of their kids wrestling in their bedroom. In a video shared on the internet, a police officer can be seen ordering the family outside as he points the gun at the door.
